Mt husband and I just spent 2 nights at the Topia Inn over Memorial Day weekend. We stayed in the Zen room. We did not have an opportunity to meet Caryn, but Nana was delightful. She provided us with the perfect amount attention while giving us our "space". Breakfast we imaginative and delicious. The inn is directly on the Ashuwillticook Rail Trail which is one of the nicest trails we've been on. We even came away with some new ideas for green living. We definitely plan on returning.

We stayed for just one night, but the inn was so lovely and relaxing, I wish it was longer.

Although described as an Inn, the Topia Inn is a B&B with wonderful food and remarkable and diverse "green" rooms and amenities. A wonderful stay, pleasant and relaxed. And very close to the Museum of Contemporary Arts.

Our first visit left me thinking that Topia was too good to be true; we visited again recently and found it to be just as wonderful an experience. Calm, peaceful surroundings; the cleanest rooms I've ever experienced; atmosphere that supports and promotes health; attention to detail and personal request that goes above and beyond; we forgot to lock the door and since we didn't feel compelled to check (and recheck) didn't discover it until morning. While I don't recommend forgetting to do so, it speaks to the level of comfort we experienced. We already have our next stay planned.

My husband and I celebrated our one year anniversary at the Topia Inn and it was wonderful! The owners took great care into renovating the place so that every aspect was as eco-friendly and toxin free as it could be, a rare gem! And it showed, it was very clean, excellent air quality, and free of allergens which was a nice treat for my husband who suffers from allergies. I was a little concerned reading other reviews that the staff would be a bit fussy, but we had no problems at all. We normally take off our shoes at home so that wasn't a problem and I loved not having to pack toiletries and getting to use their quality products, it made packing so much easier! And the bath tubs with the jets were SO relaxing! Breakfast was all organic and delicious! It wasn't a huge portion, but definitely at the top of our list for quality ingredients and taste for B&B breakfasts. The town of Adams (where it's located) dosen't have much going on, but they are close to lots of good hiking, swimming, biking, museums, movies and good restaurants. It rained most of the time we were there, but we still had plenty of things to keep us entertained! We definitely plan on going back, maybe it will be our anniversary treat every year!

I highly recommend the TOPIA INN in Adams, MA. . . . a great get away in the Berkshires. It is an all organic bed and breakfast, and reasonably priced. Leave YOUR shampoo, conditioner and deoderant at home . . . bring your brush and toothbrush . . . . They need you to use their stuff. . . . and it is okay, and sometimes better. They don't want your stuff messing with their inn. Our room was CLEAN, and I mean CLEAN. . . like the place had opened YESTERDAY . . . and not three years ago. The bedding is organic. Their cleaning products are organic. The lights are LED lights. They do have A/C and sateliite TV for the flat screens in each room. It is a CLEAN place. The inn is heated with vegetable oil. They provide their own electricity. They have solar panels on the room, and the breakfast room has the meter. Our first breakfast was poached pears with a mango syrup, which was totally yummy. Followed by a crustless quiche and banana bread made with applesauce. Again. . . yummy. Organic tea and coffee (with caffeine). Our second breakfast was a banana smoothie with mango lemonade and then the most amazing STEAMED french toast. OMG. . . . another fabulous breakfast. Everything is certified organic, except for the produce that they grow themselves. Each of the nine rooms have different themes, and we stayed in the french room. Two rooms have floating beds, which would be cool to try.

Our stay at Topia was delightful. The owners have created an oasis of tranquility that was felt as soon as we entered the building. We stayed in two different rooms which were both unique and lovely and the home made meals were delicious. The owners of the inn made us feel very welcome and went out of their way to accommodate our requests. I would definitely go back there.

We come to the Berkshires every other year and this is where we prefer to stay. We always have a great time visiting with the owners and other guests at this unique and lovely BandB.

The Topia Inn is exceedingly clean-the cleanest place ever! We were pleasantly greeted by Nina who showed us around while explaining the ins and outs of the place. Our room (African themed) was very well decorated and the rain and steam shower was perfect! We were treated very well and Nina and Caryn went out of their way to make us comfortable. I had forgotten my phone charger and they were very accommodating in letting us use their house phone. We ended up having an urgent matter to deal with so used the phone for quite some time. They were very generous in giving us free reign of their phone. Caryn, like Nina, is very personable and spent time talking to us, sharing fascinating stories. Both women are exceptionally talented and creative individuals. . . And the icing on the cake was the delicious, unique and creative breakfast. The place was quiet, and relaxing-just what we needed. Nina's recommendation to see Mass MOCA was spot on! The surrounding area appears to be somewhat run down but the B and B was so lovely, we would readily come back in a heart beat! The town is close to a pretty town not far from the Clark Museum which was a great museum. Williamstown, again near by, had love;y shops and restaurants. If you are looking for a clean, quiet, green place, Topia Inn is the place to stay!
